Drinking cool fluids and checking on elderly or infirmed neighbors are just two things to avoid heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Experts at the Ohio Department of Health are suggesting keeping outdoor activities limited to early morning or evening, when the air outside is cooler. Also, keep an eye on yourself and those around you, for signs of trouble.
Increased body temperature, no sweating, rapid pulse, headache, dizziness, confusion and gray skin color are symptoms of heat stroke.
The health department says also, don't forget about animals kept outdoors.
